Twitter #music service to be discontinued

Twitter #music for iOSThe Twitter #music service made headlines when it launched a little over a year ago, offering Twitter users discover new music and new artists. Unfortunately we didn't hear much about the service since its debut and it looks like it may soon be discontinued.

Twitter recently announced that they will be removing their official Twitter #music for iOS app from the App Store and that all existing installs stop working on April 18. Twitter hasn't revealed why it's pulling the plug on #music, but it did promise that it will "continue to experiment with new ways to bring you great content based on the music activity every day on Twitter."

Despite the fact that it was being pushed by Twitter and featured integration with services like Rdio, Spotify and iTunes, Twitter #music never seemed to catch on with consumers. Twitter always seems to be testing ways to engage its users more and become something bigger than a service to share 140-character status updates, and Twitter #music wanted to turn the social network into a place for users to not only interact with their favorite artists, but listen to and purchase their music as well.

Did you ever use Twitter #music? If so, what'd you think of the service?
